Following their use of an Ouija board at Galeras Educational Institution in Colombia, a group of girls were swiftly taken to a hospital as they lost consciousness. In total, 28 students were affected by the incident, the Sun reported.
The students were admitted to the hospital due to symptoms such as fainting, anxiety, and others. The school’s directors and worried teachers went along with the students to the hospital.
Hugo Torres, who is the head of the Galeras Educational Institution in Galeras, said: “There were 28 possible cases of anxiety in school students.”
“Given the reported cases, a series of comments were unleashed on the community that, rather than helping to resolve the situation, led to confusion and an adverse environment for our work,” he said. “The students were referred to the local municipal hospital according to protocols in place.”
The school is presently awaiting the medical reports before releasing any further details on the event.
As of now, it remains uncertain if local authorities have initiated a police inquiry into the matter.
